MCS June Release Hop and Giveaway!!!

Good morning! The day has finally arrived - all the new release stamps and dies are now available at My Craft Spot - and we are celebrating the new release with a fun hop full of inspiration, as well as a giveaway at each stop! You should have arrived here from Saundra, one of our fabulous guest designers for this release - if you just happened along, make sure and head over to the My Craft Spot blog to start at the beginning - with a giveaway at each stop, you don't want to miss any of them!

Here is my project for today, using the brand new Music stamp set - which also happens to be the one you have a chance to win just by leaving me a comment!


I still just cannot get enough watercolor - and this card was so simple and quick to make. I simply stamped the music notes 3 times, masking off one side on the last stamp and slightly staggering them so they weren't lined up too perfectly. I did an ombre effect by making the watercolors  darker on one side, then fading them out as I went across the card. Added the sentiment, some Black Twinery Twine, and a PTI button. Once the watercolor dried, I added a little sparkle with some gold Smooch Glitz.


So...your next stop in the hop is Ally - but don't forget to leave a comment before you leave for a chance to win this new set that I used today:


Here is the entire blog hop line-up in case you get lost along the way:



Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
